The Commissioners have made three changes to the CCHI’s Marks Use Policies that are effective immediately*.
The most important change affects the holders of the CHI-Arabic, CHI-Mandarin and CHI-Spanish credential. These certificants MUST specify the primary language of the credential’s performance exam by providing it immediately after the designation either with a hyphen or in parentheses. E.g., Certified Healthcare Interpreter™-Spanish OR Certified Healthcare Interpreter (Arabic) OR CHI-Mandarin. They can no longer use the CHI designation alone after their name.
The other two updates apply to holders of both the CoreCHI and CHI credentials and are meant to make these marks more user-friendly:

*While these changes are effective immediately as of this notice, CCHI gives everyone a 60-day period to fully comply with this policy, i.e. by February 16, 2022.
